nyny day 2

Wednesday, August 12, 2009

Bro and I walked around Nolita in the daytime so I could see it better, and stopped over at SoHo (South of Houston – pronounced “House-ton”, not like the Texan city). One of the places we stopped at was The Evolution Store – it was really cool, but I dont know how I feel about the real specimens being for sale (from babies to adults, articulated or not). I am also still adjusting to being in the city so my photos are few and far between (not to mention the difficulty to see things when you are worried about tripping on the crazy sidewalks of doom) but i saw this cool window display of floating dandelions and grass.

We came back to the apartment to chill out (90 degree weather and walking around a city = not a cool time). Considering his two roomies have chinese backgrounds, I assume Ill get to try different things that I normally wouldnt eat. For instance, for lunch, I had some pork buns – they were very neat and would be good with any filling i think (they were kinda bagel-ly).

We took a subway to Brooklyn and it was really quaint and quiet compared to where Ive been so far. We ate at a small cafe and pastry place called Fabiane’s Cafe and Pastry with not so good service (although very polite), but the ham and cheddar sammich and creme brulee was tasty!

We came back again to cool off and then all four of us went back to the St Marks area for some Belgian fries. (I should proclaim here that when you ask me where we went, its Nolita and Soho, but if you ask bro, its a list of like 20 places…) This place, Pommes Frites, had so many flavors of sauce! Between all of us, we tried sweet mango chutney, pomegranate teriyaki, and vietnamese pineapple. I, of course, went with boring ole cheddar cheese. We brought our greasy bags of delight home with us to eat the burgers we picked up at the grocery. A good ending to my day.

I was also gifted a very cute handmade album! It has sock monkeys on it! It was made by the Mad Woman in the Attic. She used all acid free materials, and if you cant tell, the binding is done in leather, with some beading and sewed details. Very nifty.

Oh, and the other best part about my day was when bro happened to see an ad on a taxi cab for Lucys Legacy. Its like destiny brought me here – how it slipped by me that THE lucy that i wanted to see was now HERE in the same city that I was, I will never know. But ima go see her, for sure!
